Forum: opensource_audio Subject: Basement improvs appropriate for OSA?

While I've uploaded about 200 concert recordings to the Live Music Archive, I've never really explored the Open Source Audio part of, so I wonder: would it be appropriate to upload some solo (electric) guitar basement improvisations to it (as the LMA is not)? I'd be cool with a CC license for the works, and they'd likely be a few megabytes (of 128k MP3) a week or so; I guess I'm really just looking for a good/easy way to get some works available for download. (And if OSA isn't the right place for them, what, if any, part of would be the right place?)

This is a great place for it! There are many such examples here with various instruments. My best advice is to describe the item clearly on the details page, not just write "my tunes." People are attracted to the descriptive ones.

Also, it's your choice whether to make one or a couple "depot" type items to which to you add material over time, or have separate pages for each session. There are also multiple examples either way. I like the more tunes per page style, if I'm browsing as a listener.

hell yea dude, this is exactly what your looking for. i discovered internet archives/osa about 6 months ago when i was looking for a place to upload my stuff to. i have several solo, improvised recordings up, with over 1,500 downloads so far. lol only god knows who actually listens to the stuff, or what they do with it. i wish they would leave some kind of feedback. but anyway, yea, this is the place for your improv.
